American Ballads and Folk Songs
Shanty-Man I served my time on the Black Ball Line,
Chorus To my way-ay-ay, hurrah! Shanty-Man In the Black Ball Line I served my time,
Chorus Hurrah for the Black Ball Line!
Once there was a Black Ball ship That fourteen knots an hour could clip.
You will surely find a rich gold minej Just take a trip in the Black Ball Line.
Just take a trip to Liverpool, To Liverpool, that Yankee school.
The Yankee sailors you'll see there, With red-top boots and short-cut hair.
